destiny find me winning a reputation for purity in speech and action as the high-footed laws provide. these laws which came to birth into clear air or heaven fathered by none other than olympus, no mortal of nature gave them birth. oblivion can never lay them to rest. god is great in them and he does not grow old. overbearing breeds the autocrat. overbearing, surfeited yet not satisfied with ill-gotten, unprofitable wealth. it climbs to the top of the citadel and plunges to an inescapable doom where their useless foot fails. but i pray that god will never relax an ambition that serves the state. i shall never fail to hold the god as our defender.
